We are so excited to be returning to the beautiful Perlstein Resort at Camp Chi for our first convention of the 2023 School Year! Join us December 8-10th, 2023 for a weekend full of fun programming, food, friends, and more!

Join us! This year our annual Fall convention is open to 5th-12th graders in CHUSY and those across USY. There will be two CHUSY conventions ran during the same weekend at Perlstein Resort. CHUSYFest for 8th-12th grade is The Lorax themed, while GesherFest for 5th-7th grade's convention is Cat In The Hat themed. 

 Open to all Jewish teens, 5th-12th graders. The weekend will be fully staffed (1:8 ratio) by CHUSY staff, including your synagogue and chapter advisors. We will observe Shabbat, eat delicious kosher food, learn USY traditions, meet new people, and participate in social action projects.
